What would draw a dealership to purchase Service Merchandisers?

Mostly to give your Service Department a clean and organized appearance.  Heavy duty and modular to fit any desired configuration, these Work Stations added efficiency to any busy Service Department.  All manufacturers delivered Merchandisers enameled in White.  You would have a choice of Ad Glass for a given specialty or Marquee signage that could be customized.
